On Thursday, March 14, 2013 at the Maple Grove Community Center from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., we are holding our 8th annual Empty Bowls event.
It has been our tradition that guests choose a bowl, eat a simple bowl of soup and bread and keep the bowl as a reminder of empty bowls in our community. Guests contribute a donation dependent on the chosen bowl.
Bowls are created by local artists, community members, and students and staff from Osseo Area Schools. Our event includes a silent auction for unique bowls and entertainment by local musicians and students from Osseo Area Schools. Empty Bowls raises awareness about hunger issues, educates children and adults about community service and raises much needed funds for CROSS Food Shelf, which serves the communities of Maple Grove, Osseo, Rogers, Corcoran, West Champlin, and Dayton.
Please check out our new website for Empty Bowls - www.maplegroveemptybowls.webs.com.
Here people can volunteer for the event, take a pottery class to craft bowls for the Empty Bowls Event, or an artist can donate bowls for this event. If you or your business would like to be a sponsor or make a soup donation for Empty Bowls, you will find the necessary documents at the website.
You can also find us on Facebook under Maple Grove Empty Bowls. Please share this website with friends and like us on Facebook for future updates and help us spread the word about the Empty Bowls event.
